Which is why I have an OBD reader, and torque pro, to show me the kWh capacity of the battery. I used it to reject seveeral SparkEVs on the used market before finally buying my wife the one that I eventually found with low battery degradation. (I really don't care what the mileage is, so long as the car is in good shape - I would bring it to a mechanic for evaluation).
Sure, it takes extra effort and a little equipment and a little extra time, but my motto has always been "be prepared" (and things generally go better). Or, as a gunnery sergeant used to tell me, "remember the 6 Ps : proper preparation prevents piss poor performance".
